Turkey readies for possible involvement in Syria developments – expert

PanARMENIAN.Net - Turkey is readying itself for the possible military involvement in Syrian developments, Director of RA NAS Institute of Oriental Studies said.

“Turkey is currently seriously studying the possibility of its forces to launch hostilities in Syria,” Ruben Safrastyan said, commenting on Turkish authorities’ recent statements on the Kurdish factor, military drills on border with Syria, as well as Turkish outlets about Iranian forces’ transfer to Aleppo.

In this context, the expert noted that closer analysis will make Turkey aware of the fact that involvement in Syrian developments will only weaken its positions in Kurdish factor, resulting in deterioration of Turkish ties with the Arab world.

“However, Turkey’s foreign policy has recently been based on elements of adventurism, rather than serious analysis,” Mr. Safrastyans said.
